What type of measure is being considered?

The City Council is considering placing a
three-quarter cent local sales tax increase (also known as a “transactions and
use tax”) measure on the November 3, 2020 ballot for consideration by the
voters. The measure, which requires a majority vote of the Diamond Bar voters,
would provide a reliable, ongoing source of local revenue to fund essential
city services like public safety, parks and recreation facilities and programs,
and street maintenance.
